Poincaré’s fertile error reintroduced the oldest open question in dynamical systems: the problem of stability of orbits in the n-body problem. After Poincaré the problem was studied by Birkhoff, Kolmogorov, Arnold and Moser. Laskar, using the secular system introduced by Lagrange, showed that the orbits of the planets in a realistic model of the solar system are chaotic with a Lyapounov exponent of 1/(5 Myrs).
